everybody is lake this is cold. but it will be colder probably tomorrow morning as we clear out a little bit more. we will start out and show you the weather map. it is cold enough. the national weather service has issued a freeze warning. we have some cloud cover that has pulled in so we haven't seen much in terms of temps it to the freezing mark. if we get enough clearing we will get down there very quickly and we have a good hour to go before the sun comes up. keep that in mind. if you are trying to protect anything bring it in this morning if you are getting up. 34 at reagan national. 40 dulles 39 manassas. culpeper down to 34 now. 37 gaithersburg and 37 in frederick. reagan national is close to the average low. the average high is 62 today. yesterday we only made it up to
5:56 am
53. so temperatures are about 10 below average. here is some of the cloud cover. going into the afternoon high pressure should build in and i do think we will see better conditions. we are not seeing a lot there. still early but i want to mention it because we are tracking that storm system that could affect the coast significantly for the middle of the week. it will be well to the south tomorrow so it looks good here for election day but as this heads to the carolinas we will see wind speeds pick up. that is bad for the people devastated from sandy. i think they will mostly see rain. partly sunny and cool. 47 it 52. tonight partly cloudy 27 to 35. there is the seven-day forecast. good for election day and we will see the rain on wednesday and lingering in thursday and we could see a wintry mix potentially on thursday morning but not enough i don't think to cause many problems. back to you. >> it is 5:56 now and 40
5:57 am
degrees. we are back after this.
5:58 am
5:59 am
